Noninvasive Hemodynamic Monitoring System Launched in Europe

October 22, 2010 – An advanced, noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring system has been launched in Europe. In addition to core hemodynamic parameters, Cheetah Medical’s NICOM system offers an integrated pulse oximetry functionality. The system also provides an oxygen delivery index (DO2I).

DO2I is a key indicator of oxygen delivery to the organs and tissues, which is increasingly used to guide crucial resuscitation decisions in septic, surgical and other critically ill patients. The index is a product of the amount of blood supplied to the tissues, also known as cardiac output and the blood oxygen content.

In addition, the NICOM 3.0 features a user friendly, intuitive touch-screen and real-time event-marking to enable rapid onset of monitoring and has interfacing capabilities with hospital monitoring and electronic systems.

"Accurate continuous hemodynamic monitoring to guide decisions on fluid management and drug titration is quickly becoming a vital component of treatment of the most common life-threatening conditions, including sepsis, heart failure and high-risk surgery,” said Daniel Burkhoff, M.D., Ph.D., medical director of Cheetah Medical and a leading clinical researcher in the field of heart failure. “The addition of oxygen delivery index provides clinicians with yet another previously validated important parameter that can be used to implement up-to-date goal directed resuscitation approaches."
